What To Expect

What To Expect

On Your First Visit...

If you have not been to see us before we will arrange a time for us to meet and to get to know each other. We will agree what it is that you would like us to do. You may well want us to carry out a thorough health check of your mouth including an oral cancer screen, or you might want us to look at particular problems you have, answer your questions and offer solutions.

At the initial appointment we will also take any necessary radiographs. After checking your mouth we will explain our findings and  if any other appointments are necessary we will arrange them. We will do this as soon as possible and convenient. We believe that prevention is far better than cure and we work closely with our Dental Hygienists to encourage a high standard of tooth cleaning together with careful attention to a healthy diet. Smoking is strongly discouraged.


Where treatment is necessary, we believe that it should be kept to a minimum and should be carried out with care in order to reduce the need for replacements. If there is a choice of treatments you will be told the various options, together with their advantages and disadvantages and of course their costs. Together we can then decide on the best way forward . In and around Oxford  we are very fortunate in having a number of very highly skilled dental specialists; if we feel that we cannot provide you with the most appropriate treatment we will discuss with you the option of being referred to one of our colleagues. We only want what is best for you. We want you to be so pleased that you will recommend us to your friends and family.
